The New Year is here and we're excited because our Great God is at work in us. In a New Sermon Series in The Gospel According to Mark He will be challenging us to enthusiastically serve one another. Our thriving Men & Women's Ministries, Legacy, Youth Group and Jam (Kids Ministry) are all being used to draw us closer to God and to present God with boldness and joy! We hope you can join us and experience God working mightily in your life this year!
Church members of First Baptist Church surround our pastor with daily and weekly prayer. Each Sunday they gather in the pastor’s office to pray during the worship service. They pray for the prayer cards turned into the offering plate that week and they pray for the people and the pastor while the Word of God is being proclaimed.
A vibrant ministry for those who are 50 and older at First Baptist Church.
Legacy meets on the second Saturday of each month at 6 pm at the church.
Here is the information on the upcoming Legacy meeting.

This past week we finished our series in the book of Jonah. In Jonah 4 we got to see God's grace poured out on Jonah all the more. Right after the people of Nineveh repented and God relented from the disaster they earned, Jonah was irate. The literal translation of Jonah 1:1 is, "It was evil to Jonah, a great evil."
Water and the Word
Because of a lack of rain this past fall I had not mowed the lawn for over a month. As I mowed after a good rain I was amazed at how water had turned a dry brown lawn into a lush green lawn. As I mowed I began to think about how often in scripture water is used to represent the word of God and how water is used to illustrate how Gods word saves and rejuvenates our soul.
IT’S NO SECRET! We all tend to want more out of life. That feeling of “lack” can be so depressing. We can go on Facebook or any other social media source, scroll down the memories of others, and feel like we are missing out on so much everyone else seems to have plenty of.
OAK RIDGE, Tenn. — Sam Brobst took a "Learning Your Spiritual Gift" course at Full Life Center, a charismatic church, and felt the Lord leading him to prophesy during meetings. But when Brobst opened his mouth the first time, he and others were surprised by what came out: pirate speak.
